Conclusion: The cumulative prevalence of G6PD deficiency the present is below the estimated national prevalence. G6PD deficiency was higher in tribes as compared to non-tribes. Rare G6PD Kaiping and G6PD Union variants have been identified.

In conclusion, the synergy between the antioxidant properties of Laban and the possible decrease of vicine and convicine concentrations by lactobacillus found in the fermented dairy products could explain the ability of Laban to reduce the hemolysis crisis ex vivo. PMID: 32051767 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: According to the results, unknown factors were the most common causes of icterus in Iranian neonates, followed by ABO blood groups incompatibility, infections and G6PD deficiency. By the way, phototherapy and exchange transfusion were found as therapeutic choices of neonatal jaundice. PMID: 32052364 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Padakanti A, Shenoy A, Kamath A, Chakrapani M Abstract Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency can present a diagnostic dilemma owing to the varying degrees of disease severity and the wide range of precipitating factors. Here, we report a case of a 56-year-old man who presented with signs and symptoms of heart failure and, during the course of treatment, developed intravascular hemolysis. On investigation, he was found to be G6PD deficient. Following discontinuation of the fixed-dose combination of isosorbide dinitrate and hydralazine, the clinical condition of the patient improved, and there ...

This study revealed a high prevalence of G6PDd, STHs, and anemia in schools located in a conflict zone. In areas where malnutrition and STH infections are rampant, testing for both glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and anemia should be considered before treating vivax malaria with 8-aminoquinolines.

This study provides new insights into protein expression patterns and enables the identification of many attractive candidates for investigation of PPP pathway role in the activation of the antioxidant defense system in diabetic retinopathy (DR). Our findings suggest that the PPP proteins and antioxidants (PRDX6, HMOX1, NQO1 and YES1) may act as downstream targets of PlGF and may play a decisive role in HREC biological functions in DR.

Patients with obscure etiology require genetic diagnosis which is time-consuming, expensive and laborious, mainly because of numerous causal genes. We enrolled 43 patients with clinical and laboratory evidence of unexplained hemolytic anemia. Initially, 13 patients wer...

Abstract Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) plays a principal role in the regulation of oxidative stress by modulating the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate pool and is expected to be associated with metabolic diseases such as diabetes mellitus (DM). However, it is unclear whether hyperglycemia increases G6PD activity levels in DM because suitable assays for quantifying the activity in a high-throughput manner are lacking. Using liquid droplet arrays tailored to analyze tissue lysates, we performed G6PD activity profiling in eight tissues of normal and diabetic mice: brain, heart, kidney, liver, lu...

Discussion Almost all infants in the first few days of life have some elevation of their bilirubin because of the various physiologic changes they undergo in the transition to extra-uterine life. This is a common problem managed by many different inpatient and outpatient healthcare providers. This hyperbilirubinemia is usually unconjugated and resolves in the first 1-2 weeks of life. However, when it does not resolve, health care providers have 3 general paths to follow when considering a cause: inadequate breast milk intake, an underlying organic cause or breast milk jaundice. Inadequate breastfeeding is not uncommon and...
